I’m sorry about your situation, it sucks. Of course it’s hard to be happy when all the crap keeps getting you down. I get it, I’ve also been unemployed since July. It’s not easy and it’s hard to remain positive. I think it’s healthy to vent and feel sorry for yourself sometimes, it’s natural when life gets really difficult. What is not healthy is to remain in that place of feeling sorry for yourself too long. It helps nothing.
This is my advice,
*Do something nice for yourself each day, doesn’t need to cost money. (paint your nails, watch a funny movie, call a friend, exercise, look up funny youtube videos and laugh) It’s important to take care of yourself and love who you are.
*Meditate, pray, think positively and let go of worry. There is no use in worrying, it only makes you feel worse. Just do the best you can. I struggle too.
*Have a mantra you repeat in your head over and over. Like for me (I’m strong, I can handle this, I will get what I want.) The mind is a powerful thing, if you repeat this often, your whole outlook will change, I promise you. You don’t need to spend money seeing a therapist.
*Keep in mind that this a small piece of your life journey, this too shall pass. You will get through this and be a stronger person because of it.
Girl just keep on trying and things WILL look up. Best of luck!

I’m so sorry about you Mom. I can’t even begin to imagine. It’s a lot of responsibility to take care of your mom like she is and I guess there are some questions you need to ask yourself. What do you think you’re mom would want? If she could tell you, what do you think she would say? Pray, follow your intuition, and do the best you can. Don’t be hard on yourself, you’re mom loves you no matter what.
